2014 Jan DV trip, views of Big Horn Gorge mouth from DV Wash

Post by alluvialfan » Sun Feb 09, 2014 6:51 pm

I'm breaking the report on my hike in Death Valley Wash, south from Mesquite Springs Campground, into two posts. This one is just about unique photos of the mouth of Big Horn Gorge while walking in DV wash. I'll post a separate report on DV wash.

I guess only BHG fans will enjoy the views. Here's the pics:

And here's a couple of pics of the beautifully cut right hand side (north-side) wall of BHG wash, that were taken this trip.

And here's a couple pics from 2009, of that same tall beautifully cut wall, while walking in the wash (but remember, it's better to walk to mouth of BHG via the hillside on the left of the wash)

Being that the next canyon north of Bighorn Gorge has been on my radar for the past couple of years, I found these pictures really interesting. A lot of nice views up towards that general area.
